What is a responsibility of the Project Assurance role?

Options are :

  • Ensure the Project Manager is aware of the need to use any existing corporate standards (Correct)
  • Inform corporate or program management about the project’s status
  • Document the Project Board’s reporting needs
  • Inform the Project Manager about the status of the project’s products

Answer : Ensure the Project Manager is aware of the need to use any existing corporate standards

Explanation Project Assurance persons should support the Project Manager and make them aware of standards which they should use in the project. The project assurance role, though, is independent of the project manager. This role is responsible for reporting back directly to the project board to communicate what it has found during its assurance checks.

What is a specific quality review role responsible for checking if a product is ready for its review?

Options are :

  • Chair (Correct)
  • Developer
  • Project Assurance

What is an objective of the Managing a Stage Boundary process?

Options are :

  • To record any information or lessons that can help later stages of this project and/or other projects (Correct)
  • Any movement away from the direction agreed at the start of the stage is monitored to avoid uncontrolled change
  • Ensure the host site is able to support the products
  • Ensure risks and issues are kept under control

Answer : To record any information or lessons that can help later stages of this project and/or other projects

Explanation There are four objectives in the Managing a Stage Boundary process: (1) Assure the Project Board that all products in the current stage are produced and approved. (2) Review and update, if necessary, the usual documents, which are the Project Initiation Documentation, Business Case, Project Plan, and Risk Register. (3) Record any lessons in the Lessons Log that can help in later stages or in future projects. (4) Prepare the Stage Plan for the next stage and Request Authorization to start the next stage.

What role designates the project management team?

Options are :

  • Quality assurance
  • Change Authority
  • Stakeholder
  • Corporate or program management (Correct)

Answer : Corporate or program management

Explanation The Corporate or program management is the level of management that exists outside of the project, either at organizational or program level. Ultimate responsibility for commissioning and setting project-level tolerances rests with this management level.

What is the purpose of a Configuration Management Strategy?

Options are :

  • Define how the products and various versions will be identified (Correct)
  • Define the composition and format of all the projects registers and logs
  • Identify who will set up and manage the Quality Register
  • Provide details for each configuration item and any important relationships between them

Answer : Define how the products and various versions will be identified

Explanation A Configuration Management Strategy is used to identify how and by whom the project’s products will be controlled, identified, and protected.

What principle of PRINCE2 supports planning only to a level of detail that is manageable and foreseeable?

Options are :

  • Continued Business Justification
  • Manage by Exception
  • Focus on Products
  • Manage by Stages (Correct)

Answer : Manage by Stages

Explanation The principle is called “Manage by Stages?. Every project has a "Planning Horizon", which is the limit beyond which meaningful planning cannot be undertaken. To tackle problems associated with this, PRINCE2 divides work into discrete management stages. Detailed planning can be undertaken for current stage, whereas plans for the whole project can remain in an outlined format. A significant advantage of this approach is that learning from earlier stages can be carried forward into later stages.

What is one of the Daily Log’s purposes?

Options are :

  • Provide a regular update to the Project Board on the progress of the stage
  • Record actions taken to recover from issues not recorded in the Issue Register (Correct)
  • Record the products and activities planned for the stage
  • Record and track the status of all products produced during a stage

Answer : Record actions taken to recover from issues not recorded in the Issue Register

Explanation Your Daily Log can be used as a general diary for the project manager to enter just about any daily actions and so forth. Examples might be actions to be taken, reminders, decisions to be made, general planning notes, etc…

What BEST describes risk appetite?

Options are :

  • Level of risk exposure that, when exceeded, triggers an exception
  • An organization’s attitude towards risk-taking (Correct)
  • Probable effect on the project delivering its objectives
  • Probable timeframe within which a risk may occur

Explanation Risk appetite is an organization’s unique attitude towards risk taking that in turn dictates the amount of risk that it considers is acceptable.

What is the purpose of the Communication Management Strategy?

Options are :

  • Producing reports for the Project Board
  • Defining the communication method between the Project Board and corporate/program management (Correct)
  • Ensuring stakeholders are aware of their responsibilities
  • Ensuring the project team can use the required reporting tools

Answer : Defining the communication method between the Project Board and corporate/program management

Explanation The Communication Management Strategy defines the rules of engagement for how communications should be done during the project. The Communication Management Strategy document contains a description of the means (how) and the frequency of communication to internal and external parties. This can also include the Program Management if the project is part of a program.

What BEST describes the purpose of a Lessons Report?

Options are :

  • It is used to understand the detailed nature, purpose, function and appearance of a product
  • It provides useful information regarding product status
  • It allows the corporate group responsible for any quality management system to refine, change and improve the standards (Correct)
  • It keeps the Project Board and any other stakeholders informed of stage progress

Answer : It allows the corporate group responsible for any quality management system to refine, change and improve the standards

Explanation The Lessons Report Template is used to pass on any lessons that can be usefully applied to other projects. The purpose of the report is to provoke action so that the positive lessons become embedded in the organization’s way of working, and that the organization is able to avoid any negative lessons on future projects.

What stage is the Risk Register created in?

Options are :

  • During the initiation stage (Correct)
  • When authorizing the project
  • When preparing a Project Brief during pre-project work
  • During the first End Stage Assessment

Answer : During the initiation stage

Explanation The Risk Register captures and maintains the information (both threats and opportunities) on all the risks that were identified and relate to the project. So it provides a record of all risks including their status and history. The Risk Register should be created in the Initiation stage.

What is the change budget used to fund?

Options are :

  • Request for change (Correct)
  • Fallback plan
  • Action to reduce a threat
  • Change Authority

Answer : Request for change

Explanation The change budget is an amount of money allocated to the Change Authority that is available to be spent on authorized requests for change.

Options are :

  • Project Issue
  • Off-specification
  • Tolerance (Correct)
  • Concession

Answer : Tolerance

Explanation A tolerance is the permissible deviation above and below a plan’s target for time and cost without escalating the deviation to the next level of management. There may also be tolerance levels for quality, scope, benefit, and risk. Tolerance is applied at project, stage, and team levels.

What process ensures that provisions are made to address any open issues of risks with follow-on action recommendations?

Options are :

  • Closing a Project (Correct)
  • Controlling a Stage
  • Initiating a Project
  • Directing a Project

Answer : Closing a Project

Explanation The purpose of the Closing a Project process is to provide a fixed point to check that the project has reached its objectives and that the products have been accepted. If there are any unachieved goals and objectives, they are identified during this process.

What is carried out during the Starting Up a Project process?

Options are :

  • Ensure that plans for realizing the post-project benefits are managed and reviewed
  • Appoint individuals to carry out the work required in project initiation (Correct)
  • Establish the procedure for identifying and managing risks during the project
  • Create a detailed Business Case

Answer : Appoint individuals to carry out the work required in project initiation

Explanation Several activities are conducted in the Starting Up a Project process. First, an Executive and Project Manager are appointed. Next, the previous lessons are captured. Then, the project management team is designed and appointed. Finally, the outline of the Business Case is prepared and the Project Product Description (PPD) is created.

What does the Project Board NOT have the authority to do?

Options are :

  • Trigger premature closure of the project
  • Authorizing initiation
  • Setting stage-level tolerance
  • Continuation where project-level tolerance is forecast to be exceeded (Correct)

Answer : Continuation where project-level tolerance is forecast to be exceeded

Explanation The Project Board is responsible for the success of the project based on instruction from corporate / program management. The Project Board establishes the constraints in which the Project Manager operates. The Project Board does NOT have the authority to authorize continuation when the project-level tolerance is forecast to be exceeded.

What steps looks at the aggregated net effect of a project’s treats and opportunities?

Options are :

  • Examine
  • Assess (estimate)
  • Plan
  • Assess (evaluate) (Correct)

Answer : Assess (evaluate)

Explanation Assess Risk covers two actions: Estimating and Evaluating Risk. Estimate deals with one risk at a time, and evaluate groups all risks together to give one Risk Value for the whole project.

What product would be updated to show that a decision has been made for an off-specification that has been closed?

Options are :

  • Risk Register
  • Quality Register
  • Daily Log
  • Issue Report (Correct)

Answer : Issue Report

Explanation An Issue Report is only created for those issues that need to be handled formally. The report is initially created when capturing the issue, and updated both after the issue has been examined and when proposals are identified for issue resolution. The Issue Report is later amended further in order to record what option was decided upon, and finally updated when the implementation has been verified and the issue is closed.

In addition to the estimated costs and risks of a project, what does a business case describe?

Options are :

  • Expected benefits (Correct)
  • Acceptance criteria
  • Products to be produced
  • Project approach

Answer : Expected benefits

Explanation The Business Case should describe the reasons for the project and include information on the estimated costs, risks and expected benefits. The Business Case contains an executive summary, reasons for doing the project, business options (do nothing, do the minimum, or do something), expected benefits, expected dis-benefits, timeline, costs, ROI, and major risks.

Options are :

  • Issue Register
  • Follow-on action recommendations (Correct)
  • Risk Register
  • Exception Report

Answer : Follow-on action recommendations

Explanation An End Project Report is used during project closure to review how the project performed against the version of the Project Initiation documentation used to authorize it. It also contains the follow-on action recommendations for items to be completed after the project is closed.

Fill in the blank: A Project Board member is responsible for __________ Assurance.

Options are :

  • User (Correct)
  • Risk
  • Quality
  • Product

Answer : User

Options are :

  • Project’s products to be produced
  • Approach to deliver the chosen business solution
  • Measurable acceptance criteria
  • Expected business benefits (Correct)

Answer : Expected business benefits

Explanation The Business Case describes the reasons for undertaking the project based on estimated costs, the major risks, and expected business benefits. The Business Case provides the justification for an organizational activity (project), which typically contains costs, benefits, risks, and timescales. The continued viability of the project is tested against this business case to justify continuing the project throughout its lifecycle.

What is responsible for carrying out independent audits of the project to check that the processes are in place for quality planning and control?

Options are :

  • Project Support
  • Quality Assurance (Correct)
  • Project Board
  • Project Assurance

Options are :

  • Tailoring PRINCE2 to the project environment
  • Processes
  • Themes (Correct)
  • Principles

Answer : Themes

Explanation PRINCE2 states that themes are the parts of the project that need to be continually addressed throughout the project lifecycle. Themes are knowledge areas where each theme provides how to accomplish a specific area of project management, such as the Business Case, Planning, Quality, etc.

What looks at the aggregated net effect of a project’s threats and opportunities?

Options are :

  • Assess (Correct)
  • Identify
  • Plan
  • Examine

Answer : Assess

Explanation When you assess risk, you are determining the probability, impact, and proximity (when the risk will occur) of each project risk if no action was taken. The next step is that all the identify threats and opportunities are now aggregated together to evaluate the overall severity of the project risk to ensure that these remain within risk tolerance set by the project board.

According to PRINCE2, a project must have ________ justification. What words would BEST fill in the blank?

Options are :

  • Senior manager
  • Continued business (Correct)
  • Consistent user
  • Business operational

Answer : Continued business

Explanation A PRINCE2 project must have continued business justification. This is performed through creating a Business Case. There is no reason to start a project if there is no continued business justification, because the project must make sense from a business point of view and provide a clear Return on Investment.

The PRINCE2 principle ’continued business justification’ states that a requirement for a project is that __________. There is justifiable reason to start the project and justification should remain valid throughout the life of the project. What statement below best fills in the blank?

Options are :

  • A product must deliver tangible, financial benefits
  • The Business Case will include details of all project risks
  • The justification is documented and approved (Correct)
  • Clear ownership of the Business Case is documented

Answer : The justification is documented and approved

Explanation A PRINCE2 requirement is that all projects have a continued business justification. This means that there is a justifiable reason to start it, and that the justification remains valid throughout the project and that it is appropriately documented and approved. Organizations that lack detail or depth in their business case may find that projects are undertaken that deliver little or no business benefit.

What is considered to be an output of a project?

Options are :

  • A consequence of doing the project that is perceived as negative by one or more stakeholders
  • Any tangible or intangible specialist product (Correct)
  • The result of change, normally affecting real world behaviour
  • A measurable improvement to the business

Answer : Any tangible or intangible specialist product

Explanation Outputs are deliverables or products created in your project. These products can be physical things such as buildings or software programs, or intangible things such as policies.

Complete this statement: PRINCE2 recommends three __________to reflect the needs of the different levels of management involved in a project.

Options are :

  • Types of risk responses
  • Levels of issue
  • Stakeholders
  • Levels of plans (Correct)

Answer : Levels of plans

Explanation It is often impossible to plan an entire project from the start, as you can only accurately plan in detail a short time in advance. This is called the planning horizon, i.e., as far ahead as you can see. It is therefore a good idea to have different levels of plans. PRINCE2 recommends three levels of plans: Project Plan, Stage Plan, and Team Plans.

What risk responses can be used to seize an opportunity if a risk does occur?

Options are :

  • Accept
  • Exploit (Correct)
  • Enhance
  • Transfer

Answer : Exploit

Explanation Exploit is where, if the risk does happen, you would take advantage of it and use it.

What is carried out as part of the initiation stage?

Options are :

  • Define the method of delivering the chosen business solution (Correct)
  • Agree tolerances for each Work Package
  • Appoint the Executive and Project Manager
  • Provide a detailed business case

Answer : Define the method of delivering the chosen business solution

Explanation The purpose of the Initiating a Project process is to understand the work that needs to be done to deliver the required products. This understanding is needed before deciding to continue with the project. A detailed business case is not required, only an outline at this point.

What BEST describes a risk cause?

Options are :

  • The situation or event that gave rise to a risk (Correct)
  • The area of uncertainty in terms of the threat or opportunity
  • The impact of a risk on the stage and project tolerance
  • How likely a risk is to occur in a given project situation

Answer : The situation or event that gave rise to a risk

Explanation The risk cause is the the source of the risk (a particular situation or event that enabled the risk to be realized). PRINCE2 recommends first identifying the project risk cause or source of the project risk, then go on to describe the project risk events which is the area of uncertainty for each threat or opportunity, and then to describe the project risk affect or impact should the project risk materialize.

What is used to record and maintain information regarding any issues that are being managed formally?

Options are :

  • Configuration Item Record
  • Daily Log
  • Issue Register (Correct)
  • Risk Register

Answer : Issue Register

Explanation The Purpose of the Issue Register is to capture and maintain information on all of the issues that are being formally managed. The Issue Register should be monitored by the Project Manager on a regular basis.

What best describes a successful project in PRINCE2 that follows the principle of ’Focus on Products’?

Options are :

  • Output oriented (Correct)
  • Benefits oriented
  • Activity oriented
  • Resource oriented

Answer : Output oriented

Explanation The project should be output oriented if you have a ’Focus on Products’. You should know ahead of time what is expected of the product. Product requirements determine work activity, not the other way around.

What is authorized one at a time by the Project Board?

Options are :

  • Work Packages
  • Team Plans
  • Product Description
  • Stages (Correct)

Answer : Stages

Explanation The objective of authorizing the project is to decide whether to proceed with the rest of the project. In order to authorize the project the project board will need to undertake the some actions, such as reviewing the project definition and project approach to ensure that they are still feasible and checking that lessons from previous projects have been incorporated. The project board will want to confirm that the four strategy documents are sufficient for the project and that they will perform their purpose of adequate control throughout the project. The project board must ensure that the project management team have agreed roles and responsibilities, in particular any delegation of duties for example the appointment of a change authority.

Fill in the blank: The Managing a Stage Boundary process is predicated on dividing the project into __________.

Options are :

  • Stage tolerances
  • Technical Stages
  • Management stages (Correct)
  • Work Packages

Answer : Management stages

Explanation The Managing a Stage Boundary process is predicated on dividing the project into management stages. A project needs to ensure that the products it creates will deliver the benefits being sought after. The continuing correct focus of the project should be confirmed at the end of each stage.

What is the base product against which the Project Board and Project Manager can assess progress, issues, and questions regarding the ongoing viability of the project?

Options are :

  • Project Initiation Documentation (Correct)
  • Benefits Review Plan
  • Product Status Account
  • Project Brief

Answer : Project Initiation Documentation

Explanation The three primary uses of the Project Initiation Documentation are to (1) Ensure that the project has a sound basis before asking the Project Board to make any major commitment to the project; (2) Act as a base document against which the Project Board and Project Manager can assess progress, issues, and ongoing viability questions, and (3) Provide a single source of reference about the project so that people joining the ’temporary organization’ can quickly and easily find out what the project is about, and how it is being managed.

What BEST defines risk probability?

Options are :

  • Probable timeframe within which the risk may occur
  • Scale of the risk should it occur
  • Probable effect on the project delivering its objectives
  • A measure of the likelihood of the risk occurring (Correct)

Answer : A measure of the likelihood of the risk occurring

Explanation Risk probability is the a measure of the likelihood of the risk occurring.

What BEST describes the sequence that the products of a plan are developed in?

Options are :

  • Project Product Description
  • Product Flow Diagram (Correct)
  • Product Breakdown Structure
  • Product Description

Answer : Product Flow Diagram

Explanation A Product Flow Diagram defines the sequence in which the products of the plan will be developed and shows the dependencies between them. This diagram shows the products that are outside the scope of the plan. Once this diagram is in place, the next steps would be to consider the activities that are required, as well as estimating and scheduling.

Fill in the blank: If the Project Manager needs to know the results of a quality review, the __________ will provide a summary together with the date of any follow-up meeting.

Options are :

  • Quality Register (Correct)
  • Daily Log
  • Stage Plan
  • Issue Register

Answer : Quality Register

Explanation The Quality Register is a register containing summary details of all planned and completed quality activities. The Quality Register is used by the Project Manager and Project Assurance as part of the reviewing progress.

What theme helps with the identification, assessment, and control of threats and opportunities?

Options are :

  • Organization
  • Risk (Correct)
  • Business Case
  • Change

Answer : Risk

Explanation The Risk theme focuses on managing project risks through identification, assessment, and control of threats and opportunities. Effective risk management maximizes a project’s chance for success.

What is a recommended response type to respond to an opportunity?

Options are :

  • Reject (Correct)
  • Accept
  • Transfer
  • Reduce

Answer : Reject

Explanation The responses to opportunities are Share, Exploit, Enhance, and Reject. The response of reject occurs when you identify an opportunity and decide not to take any action on this opportunity. There can be many reasons not to do this. For example, it could cause you to lose focus on your main objective, or the return on this opportunity could be considered too low.

When does The Progress theme assist the Project Board to assess project viability at regular intervals?

Options are :

  • Creates Exception Reports when tolerances are forecast to be exceeded
  • Reports to the Project Board during project closure
  • Sends regular Checkpoint Reports to the Project Board
  • Only one management stage is authorized at a time (Correct)

Answer : Only one management stage is authorized at a time

Explanation Management stages are partitions of the project with decisions points for the Project Board between each stage. A management stage is a collection of activities to produce products and is managed by the Project Manager. Only one management stage can be authorized at a time.

What process prevents poorly conceived projects from ever being initiated?

Options are :

  • Directing a Project
  • Initiating a Project
  • Starting Up a Project (Correct)
  • Closing a Project

Answer : Starting Up a Project

Explanation The purpose of this process is to answer the question, “Do we have a worthwhile and viable project?? The project mandate is usually the only document that exists when this process starts, and this is not enough information for the Project Board to make the decision to start the Initiation Stage. Therefore, the purpose of this process is to provide the Project Board with the necessary information to judge if the project is worthwhile. In fact, the aim is to do the minimum necessary just to see if it is even worthwhile to start the Initiation stage.
